Experience during the program

Scheller's full time MBA program is best defined as bunch of lies. If you are really motivated in moving your career in top shelf then Scheller is definitely not a place for you since not many top employers show up on business school campus. In fact doesn't even recognize the school (speaking from personal experience). Do not get fooled by list of companies provided on school website. Since students get in those companies (e.g. microsoft, oracle, google) through personal connections (remember personal connections and not school alumni list). Career service will not shy for taking credit for these placements. But reality is their credit is zero in this case. During admission process school boasts about their placements and the type of companies. I was fooled by similar stuff. Even some of my classmates have emails from career services claiming top companies like Google, Apple comes on to campus to recruit. But it is totally false and do not fall for that trap. Choice of electives is mediocre. Faculty is average. Few are really exceptionally but mostly really mediocre. Class does not have good diversity in terms of experience. Most of Atlanta locals and veterans are really incompetent. Other than low cost of tuition there is not much in this schools. If you are looking for average career jump in second tier companies then this is the school for you.

I am not sure what happened in your experience at Georgia Tech, however I attended Tech as an undergrad and can assure you that the companies you mention do in fact recruit there both for undergraduate and graduate programs. I know several graduates at top consulting firms and in the tech industry. In addition you mention that companies "don't know" Georgia Tech but that is patently false because Tech is a top ranked engineering school that is one of the top ten feeders into silicon valley, so even if they aren't familiar with the business school they definitely will know GT. I am sorry you had such a poor experience but I felt the need to comment so that others who read this have a different perspective.

1. Its definitely not one of the top 10 MBAs in US , but the ROI is top 5 in the country.
2. If you do well and put in your effort you are guaranteed to get more than what you put.
3. Career services is very supportive and helpful.
4. Overall its a good program at a great location.
5. But keep in mind that if you want the top consulting jobs , top tech jobs , on campus opportunities are limited. Again if you are a good candidate you will anyway get these jobs through the alumni and off campus opportunities. I would say its the cheapest MBA in US that provides great job opportunities post MBA.

It's the best business school in the southeast in my opinion. Great location, great atmosphere, excellent facilities, world-class reputation, technology savvy, and excellent alumni network make this school stand out among its peers. I learnt a lot at Georgia Tech. It was a hard work but was very rewarding as can be attested by number of career offers I received at the end of my graduation. Strong alumni network is Georgia Tech's strength, and you've to use it to your advantage. Location in the heart of Atlanta doesn't hurt either. Lastly, campus is really beautiful and lively, with lots of cool places to study at leisure.

Experience during the program

The first year has been a fantastic experience. I was pleasantly surprised at how competitive the program is. The compressed core is a huge plus point for this program as it gives us the opportunity to start taking electives sooner. The program office does a great job in ensuring that you transition to graduate school is as smooth as possible. The faculty are extremely approachable and are a great asset to the program. They are as enthusiastic, if not more, about the courses and their research and that translates to a great classroom experience.

Career services has a great network with a wide range of companies in all parts of the country and they invest a lot of time in ensuring you are prepared the best you can be.

Experience during the program

The size of the program is great but there is a real lack of diversity in the full time program. There are things in place to correct this but it will take time. I suggest applicants attend as many info sessions as possible because it will be pretty indicative of what the incoming class will look like.

I am pursuing a career in real estate development and there are not that many courses offered through Scheller. However, we have the flexibility to take courses at GSU and Emory and in the building and construction school at Tech. There is also a new Masters of Real Estate Development program and maybe an opportunity to dual degree int he future.

Scheller Evening MBA Program

Class of:

2015

Experience during the program

I was pleasantly surprised by the output of the school community and alumni community. The school is continuously budding new ways to expand and grow to new heights - regarding program rank, corporate connections, alumni network, and specializationa. The professors are top-notch, career services is amazing, and the school is located in the heart of Atlanta. I enjoyed the marketing classes the most, as the professors were able to really tie in how technology challenges strategists to develop new ways to market to old and new consumer bases. The operations courses were also very challenging while being very educational - which helped this communications undergrad major round out my skills and go into international product management. I would HIGHLY recommend the Scheller MBA to anyone looking for an affordable program (for a Top 30 MBA program).
